We are glad you have found your way here as this is the best way to prepare a turkey. The wet brine actually changes the molecular structure of the turkey, making it moister and more flavorful.
3 cups apple juice or apple cider
16 cups of water
4 tbsp. fresh rosemary leaves
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 Summa Salts Brine Kit
2 cups brown sugar
3 tbsp. peppercorns
5 whole bay leaves
3 cloves garlic, minced
Peel of three large oranges
3 Swedish fish (optional)
The Swedish fish are optional, as is most of this. The primary ingredients are the salt, sugar, apple juice and water. All the other ingredients add a depth of flavor, and can be changed for other fresh or dried herbs for similar effect.
Combine all the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil, stirring until the salt and sugar dissolve.
Turn off heat, cover and allow the brine to cool completely.
Place the uncooked turkey in a large brining bag or bucket. We prefer to use the firehouse pickle buckets. They are $2 and the money goes to charity. Pour in the brine solution to cover the turkey, you may need to add water until the turkey is fully submerged. Refrigerate for 16-24 hours.
Before roasting, remove the turkey from the brine (discard the brine) and wash the turkey completely inside out. You can also soak the turkey for 10-15 minutes if desired. Remove the turkey from the water, pat dry, and cook as desired.
